They were making progress until they fired Dean Piatt.

I keep hearing that St. Mary's is trash. My guess is reputation/placement? Care to comment?
Hearsay is information gathered by Person A from Person B concerning some event, condition, or thing of which Person A had no direct experience.
I have a relative that went to St Marys. Loved every minute of it and has a job paying the big bucks. As in everything there were the good parts and the bad parts. He/She always said that law schoold does not teach you to pass the bar.
Now compare that to another relative that went to Stanford. He/She always said that law school does not teach you to pass the bar.
I want to do IP law of some sort and TTU has the facilities and the concentration/classes fit for that field of law.
A friends son graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Mechanical Enginerring (with high honors). He went to TT and did VERY VERY well (2008 graduate). He is now doing IP somewhere in Maryland.
I agree with you 100% MichaelNKat. I learned a long time ago to apply the old 80/20 rule. 20% of the people on this board give 80% of the excellent/good advice and are
there to help you. The other 80% you should learn to ignore.
It does no good to verbally assault them as they have nothing better to do than to
"Put you down". They thrive on this as it is the only way they have of feeding their ego.
Just ignore them and move on to those that are there to help.
So, they negotiated with the sellers to increase the offer price and have the sellers pick up the closing costs. The seller was not out any money, and the buyer did not have to pay the closing costs up front.
FYI - If you do this you are paying interest for 30 years on your closing cost.

Based on what you have asked:
My daughter applied to 1 law school (around 15-20) and was placed on the wait list
( 165/3.8 ). It was there or nothing. At the last minute she decided to apply to a T4 down the road (30 days late). She was accepted and offered a 50% scholarship (her numbers put her well in the
top 5% of those admitted).
She did EXTREMELY well over her 3 years. At 2L OCI she had 10 interviews and 7 offers (If I remember correctly). She worked for 2 great firms in the city her school is in.
She was offered a New York salary with a southern state cost of living.
She loved her school and the city it was in.
She feels she got a great education and (most) of the teachers were good. She did have some gripes but you will find that anywhere.
It all comes down to personal preference.
Do you want to graduate with a ton of debt and hope you can find a job or do you to graduate with as little as debt as possible and hope you can find a job. Is that higher ranked school really gonna give you that much more of an advantage. Some say yes. Some say no.
What state will the economy be in in a few years. You can graduate from a T1 but if there are no, or limited, jobs then what are you going to do.
What is it you want out of life.
How much risk are you willing to take.
It's like the lottery - everyone plays but only a few win the big prize.

You MEN have no idea what it's like to be a woman in a male dominated environment. We're the modern day black face. As they struggled in the 60's, we still struggle today in the professional world.
You're not really comparing the plight of women today to that of blacks in the 60s...are you?

A friend of mine at work has a son who goes to a T3.
He started with nothing. At the end of his 1st year he was on 50% scholarship and at the end of his 2nd year is on full scholarship.
I also believe that he is going to be the executive editor of the law review next year. He will be doing Patent Law in the DC area this summer.
